    Which College within CMU are you interested in? Your GPA is lowish for CIT/SCS/tepper. Hopefully you are the only one applying with NIH internship because plenty of kids in my grade also went to NIH/NASA so it becomes just a supplement. Show quirkiness (yeah CTY). For RD 50%in/50% rejected. Good Luck on your apps.
